Another day of my youth burned off while locked inside my home, practically chained to the practice of systematically creating art(s).
On a much lighter note, I was happy to find that a looping pedal that I won eBay manifested itself on my doorway this morning:
It came professionally packaged in this beautiful piece of thoughtfulness:
Mmm duct tape. At least they're thinking effeciently.
As promised, I put together a mix for my friend Mike Travis who is currently feeling a bit under the weather. It's located below, for anyone else who'd like to enjoy a little something new, or maybe not so new...
It's a blend of mostly downtempo, dreamy, melancholy 'indie' songs from many extremely Canadian and American musicans, all spanning the past few years, with the most aggressive track being Animal Collective. AHAHA. A pleasurable listening experience, overall.
Enjoy, and feel better, Mike.
